The US Mint recently announced that, starting in 2020, a woman will replace Alexander Hamilton on the face of the ten dollar bill. But is this what Americans want? Not according to a recent YouGov poll, which found that a plurality of Americans don't want there to be any change at all. What's more, Hamilton isn't even the top choice to be replaced; Andrew Jackson inches out both Hamilton and Grant as the most easily replaceable of the bunch.

As a senior at Hamilton College, I might be a little biased, but there is absolutely no reason why they should be removing the first Secretary of Treasury from our currency. I understand the impetus to place a woman on our money, but if one has to go, should it be the Founding Father that established the first national bank? That doesn't make much sense to me.

It's a matter of timing. The $10 is up for redesign. As other bills come up for redesign you might see some of these other faces replaced as well.
